Timing for CSP—>CSR upgrade

Hi guys, I opened my CSP last year (2018) on 2/20 with an $11.4k limit. My FICO EX/TU scores are around the mid 760’s.

I am going on several trips this year and would like to see when I’d be eligible for the upgrade to CSR. Do I need to wait 12 or 13 months before upgrading?

I have a trip that I’m leaving on 2/20/19 for, and was wondering if I would be able to have the next card by that day? If not, my next trip after that is a month-long trip to Europe in mid-June and I would prefer not to pay the AF on the CSR for Mar-May and just upgrade in June.

Would it make sense to downgrade to Sapphire original when my CSP AF is due, then upgrade to CSR in May-June when I need it for my trip? Or just pay the CSP AF and have it for a few months before my trip then upgrade?

My daily driver is my AMEX Gold.


Thanks guys!
